I have kept this image on the same scale as my previous images of Mars in October to give an idea of the change in size. This is also a nice view of Syrtis Major and other features on this face of Mars.  The image is approximately 8minutes worth of four colour and four IR pass videos with the best 40% of each video stacked and then de-rotated with WinJupos.    Mars has already shrunk from around 22 arc seconds to just over 19 arc seconds within a few weeks of opposition.
